Safety leadership lessons from Star Wars
One of the most successful movie and TV franchises of all time, Star Wars shines with its spectacular visuals and edge-of-your-seat battle sequences. But what keeps audiences coming back in their millions is the timeless struggle between good and evil played out across a whole universe.
From the first trilogy to the latest TV series, Star Wars is packed with fundamental life lessons, many of them directly applicable to safety leadership. From the Empire’s command and control system with its culture of fear and blame to the visible leadership, people-first approach of the rebel alliance, the movies offer examples of the best and worst ways to manage, motivate and protect people at work.
Join safety journalist Louis Wustemann and Malcolm Staves, Global Head of EHS at L’Oréal, to explore insights from the saga, from The Phantom Menace to the Mandalorian, into what makes for great leadership.
You will learn:
- The traits of authentic leadership that inspire loyalty and commitment.
- How the real rewards in leadership lie outside your comfort zone.
- The power of standing up to protect others.
- Plus, one very real lesson from the franchise that helped change movie-making safety.
